DA Lay Charges Against Mduduzi Manana

Wiro, who was Manana's former domestic worker, laid a complaint of common assault against him last week, after she claimed he pushed her down the stairs at his Fourways home.

Former deputy Higher Education Minister Mduduzi Manana arrives at the Randburg magistrates court on 8 November 2017.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) is expected to open extortion and corruption cases against him at the Douglasdale Police Station.

In September past year, Manana was convicted of three counts of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm after he pleaded guilty to the charges.

TimesLive reported last Tuesday that the recording emerged in which Manana allegedly offered his domestic worker R100 000 to drop the charges. But she later withdrew the charges because she said she feared for her life.

"Manana clearly abused his privileged position and subjected Ms Wiro to financial pressure to avoid further prosecution", Stander said.

Several party members will lay a criminal complaint against him today.

Stander said that in a question and answer session in March, deputy president David Mabuza responded to her after she asked why no action had been taken against Manana by saying "the ANC doesn't have a dustbin into which it throws its members, rather they try and "rehabilitate them".

"Cyril Ramaphosa and Mduduzi Manana belong to the same WhatsApp group".

Stander said the ANC should have fired Manana as an MP when he was convicted of assault.

Attempts at getting commentary from the ANC and Manana were unsuccessful at the time of publication.
